SHORT VIDEO CARD REVIEWS
 
 
VIDEOLOGIC
APOCALYPSE 5D
Pros:
Combines the best of both worlds. Blazing "gaming 2D" , DirectDraw , etc. Fast 3D acceleration.
Cons:
Not as fast as newer 3D acclerators , CPU dependent. 2D not the fastest anymore , expensive
Rating:
5/10
 
    The ultimate gaming combo , or so Videologic says... The Apocalypse 5D combines the state of the art 2D of the Tseng ET6100 with the 3D acceleration of the powerVR2. Supposedly the fastest combo on the market , the Apocalypse 5D is a major let down. The downfall factor , the price. The Apocalypse 5D combo costs almost 300$ for an 8 megabyte version. For this much money , someone would be better off purchasing the ET6100 alone for about 100$ and pairing it up with a Monster 3D for 150$. This would save them 50$ and give them better performance. Nowadays , there are way to many faster cheaper combo's to make the Apocalypse 5D worth buying.
